In this episode of the DarshanTalks podcast, we discuss with the guest John Lewis about New Roles in Patient Centricity, patient recruitment, and the host Darshan Kulkarni Pharm.D, MS, Esq. holding an interesting conversation that revolves around patient centricity. John Lewis an Executive Director of Heart Valve Voice US - patient advocacy, nonprofit organization, provides patients with a united voice to improve health for people living with heart valve disease by advocating for early detection, meaningful support, and timely access to appropriate treatment for all people affected by heart valve disease. The conversation began with the effects of the corona pandemic as supposed to the years 2020 and 2021. No one anticipated the 2020 march lockdown, everyone had some plans for the year and now the ending of 2021 it hasn't been a great year too as discussed by the host and guest in the podcast. The expert said that the company was able to plan in the pandemic period, many non-profit organizations required funding and that was lacking due to pandemic also the patient advocacy aspect was discussed wherein patients were informed and all the issues that were pending were taken up by the company to ensure patient centricity. He conveyed the takeaways in the pandemic and one of them was research advocacy that involves patient preference study and evolving new opportunities or directly involved recruiting patients for clinical trials. He explained in detail and drove a comparison between the practicality of what is happening in patient advocacy and whats researchers' line of thought. The concept of patient-focused device or medical development wherein one is taking patient thoughts, wishes, and considerations into the design of the clinical trials and outcomes of the clinical trials whilst there exist patient-reported outcomes which means that it can occur during the clinical process or clinical care that may not be considered or quantified in the initial stage. Further, there are patient preferences which is an emerging area. Many pertinent questions were asked regarding patient selection, and the company's overall heart valve outlook towards the patients that were answered by the expert.

Why Pizza Is NOT Working | Dr. Bled Tanoe, PharmD

Podcast cover
Read more

#PizzaIsNotWorking campaign calls for greater support for overworked pharmacists, referenced from Becker's Health:

Oklahoma City pharmacist Bled Tanoe, PharmD, recently started the #PizzaIsNotWorking social media campaign to draw awareness to the reality that free pizza and other ad-hoc rewards are not a viable solution to the burnout sweeping the pharmacy industry.

Dr. Tanoe share with us that she and other pharmacists desperately need pharmacies' parent companies to make major changes to the way they support pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.

"One of their biggest fears is I am going to make a mistake and it is going to cost someone's life. Someone is going to make a mistake and it will cost someone's life or their family's life," she said.

Pharmacists who have joined the movement say that the added responsibilities that came with the pandemic, such as administering COVID-19 vaccines and tests, have exacerbated the problem. Many pharmacists have shared stories of quitting their jobs or wanting to enter early retirement as a result of the stress.

"There are people who have been in the profession for 20-40 years who love being pharmacists who say, 'I can't do this anymore.' And when people who have been in the industry that long say that they can't do it anymore you know it is very severe," Dr. Tanoe said. 

The "​​Pharmacy Staff for COVID-19 Support" Facebook group Dr. Tanoe started as part of the campaign has about 44,600 members.

Pharmacists Providing Patients with Trusted Care During the Pandemic & Beyond

Podcast cover
Read more

In the fight against COVID-19, frontline health workers have been vital to keeping the pandemic at bay, but recognition of individual professions’ efforts have been inconsistent at all levels. Pharmacists around the world have continued to provide direct patient care and perform frontline duties for their communities during this pandemic, but are often relegated to the background and overlooked when frontline workers are heralded. Community pharmacists are the most accessible healthcare practitioners, which is further proven during the pandemic as they continued to provide direct patient care despite restrictions imposed by the government due to the pandemic. Due to the inaccessibility of other healthcare practitioners during this time, community pharmacists have reduced the burden on the healthcare system by diverting the influx of patients away from hospitals through triaging and screening patients.

Community pharmacists have played various roles in supporting the healthcare system during COVID-19: delivering medications to patients, educating patients on telehealth services, assessing patients for renewal of chronic medications, performing consultations on minor ailments, clarifying misconceptions about COVID-19 treatments, and contributing to COVID-19 screening. Alongside ICU nurses, physicians, and respiratory therapists, hospital pharmacists have been part of the COVID-19 efforts and their roles include management of drug shortages, development of treatment protocols, participation of patient rounds, interpretation of lab results for COVID-19, participant recruitment for clinical trials, exploration of new drugs, medication management advice, and antimicrobial stewardship. Further support from pharmacists will be needed once a vaccine is launched in order to reach population-wide coverage. Amid COVID-19, pharmacists have not stopped working as frontline workers and they should be recognized as such.

Evolving Trademarking | DarshanTalks

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode of @darshantalks, we had discussed Evolving Trademarking with guest Christiane Campbell. Christiane Campbell, Cannabis and Luxury Branding Attorney, Partner at Duane Morris LLP (https://www.duanemorris.com/), had spoken about the recent boom in cannabis litigation, catalysed by the New Jersey effect.

The legalisation of cannabis in New Jersey significantly impacted the tri-State area and the Midwest parts of the US. The pharma bills recently passed include the legalisation of cannabis for recreational use as well, which is evidence of FDA approval. Doctors have started prescribing doses of cannabis to their patients for medical use, but if they get the specifications wrong, it can lead to a consumer issue.

Disputes related to false advertising are coming up, where companies are falsely claiming that their product is of higher quality and concentration. In case of trademark disputes, the client usually wants to know if the label is appropriate to avoid litigation or being sued by the USPTO and is the least bothered about whether the percentages of constituents of cannabis are correct.

Trademark lawyers need to look at the issues with respect to the use and registration of the client's brand. More than looking at a trademark specifically, it is crucial to look at what brand it is about and whether the celebrity fits the associated messaging. Sometimes, if a star says something in an advertisement that was thoroughly vetted but still not sufficient, the FDA states that it is a false advertisement, and thus it should be replaced with a corrective ad.

Usually, these kinds of circumstances are accounted for in the contract negotiated by the brand against the talent.
